Global chemical companies have reported robust results for 2016 but the outlook for 2017 and beyond remains mixed. With political uncertainties across the world growth rates from major markets in both Europe and China vary, while entering a new chemical era. The ongoing wave of M&A activity and latest trends and dynamics in China are not the only things affecting the chemical industry. The shape of the Middle East and the ability to position themselves as global competitors is changing the face of the global chemical industry. A dramatic fall in crude oil prices, reduced advantage from cheap feedstocks, a shifting competitive landscape and other challenges are forcing Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) chemical producers to rethink strategy and the way they have done business for decades. GCC companies are exploring a variety of solutions that are showing strong potential for sustainable growth in the future. Chemical companies may become more and more subject to the principles of business success that apply else where. With careful guidance and an openness to change, they can maintain and even increase their competitive advantage in today’s world markets.
Listen to Oliver Gawad, Senior Director, Deal Advisory, Strategy Industrials & Chemicals, who discusses these issues.
